Citroen gets Airplay at Bologna

01 December 2005

  • Citroen supermini concept unveiled
  • C-Airplay has glass-panelled roof section
  • Portholes in doors to let passengers see road


This cute supermini concept has been unveiled by Citroen at the Bologna Motor Show today.

The two-seater is called the C-Airplay, is shorter than a C2 and features a removable, glass-panelled roof section.

A pair of portholes in the doors means passengers can see the road passing by underneath, a trick designed to increase the sensation of speed in the car, which is powered by a 110bhp engine.

Touch-sensitive controls are built into the dashboard and between the two passengers on the one-piece moulded seat.

There's no official word yet on whether Citroen might build such a two-seater on the C2 platform, but its simple, removable panel would be in marked contrast to the complicated roof design on the C3-based Pluriel convertible.
